Sympathy for the Devil: Breen & Tozer: 4 by William Shaw
'Big treat in store for fans. And if you're not a fan yet, why not?' Val McDermid
SUMMER OF LOVE
She made a profit from her youth. She's not beautiful anymore - but now she will be young forever.
Called away from his pregnant girlfriend, Detective Sergeant Cathal Breen knows the sight of the murdered prostitute will be with him all his life. But this is what he does: he finds killers. Helen Tozer, more than most, understands why.
SUMMER OF DEATH
The girl they called Julie Teenager had a client list full of suspects - all rich, powerful - and protected. Someone warns off the beat coppers; someone disturbs the crime scene. When Breen gets a phone call from MI6, he fears just how protected his suspect is. These are dangerous waters, where Russian spies hide.
Then Helen, with her unstoppable copper's instinct and fierce moral sense, dives into the investigation. And Breen knows he has more to lose than ever before. He is about to become a father. He can have no sympathy for the devil.
Tense, dramatic and ingeniously plotted, Sympathy for the Devil is a gripping police thriller set in a world before forensics or criminal databases; a world that's bigoted and brutal.
